In Mobile, Property Damage Liability and Bodily Injury are two important insurance coverages to understand. When you're found to be at fault in a car accident, Bodily Injury helps pay for other drivers and passengers accident-related medical expenses (not yours). Property Damage Liability comes in handy when you cause an accident that damages someone else's property. It will help pay for this damage. This typically involves damage to another person’s car, but might also include things like damage to a guardrail, fence, mailbox, or home.
Property Damage Liability claims are made when you're responsible for damaging another person's property. Your accident-related vehicle damages are not paid for under this coverage. If you're worried about having a financial cushion to help cover your own after-accident costs, give us a call. We'll explain the details of other coverages that can help like Medical Payments, Comprehensive, Collision, and Under/Uninsured Motorist.
What's the best amount of liability insurance to have in terms of Property Damage Liability in Mobile? It depends on the driver and the state. You could get Alabama's minimum Property Damage Liability limits as required by law, but you could also go with higher limits. Property Damage coverage operates on a per accident basis, unlike Bodily Injury Liability which operates on a per person/per accident basis. Depending on the state and company, liability limits for Property Damage can range from $5,000 to $100,000. Going with low limits could help you find cheap auto insurance, but it also means that you could be responsible for paying for the property damage you cause that your insurance doesn't cover. So, if the property damage you cause in an accident is more than your coverage limit, you may have to pay the difference.
